David Novak: Leadership Podcast

Over the past three years I have become obsessed with podcasts, especially those about business, and ones that contain great stories. Recently I found Mr. Novak’s podcast, and in my opinion there is none better. His questions, delivery, enthusiasm, as well as the way he layers the questions are all first class. They are easy for the guest to answer and easy for us listening to comprehend. Thank you.
